Would that this were the first time I've read this today!

Over here we're considering it day 1 of the Phantom Menace Holiday Weekend.

Celebrating The Phantom Menace is like celebrating the start of World War 2 or the arrival of the Bubonic Plague in Europe.

It's one of my sister's birthday as well. I've never said, "May the 4th be with you" to her in my life. Yesterday was absolutely the first time I ever heard this 'joke.'

The first three movies were really bad. The third one toward the end, once he goes evil, gets to sort of passable - but mostly only by comparison to Jar Jar.

I'll ask for the Brazillionth time - How could you take such great material and fuck it up so badly? I guess we got our answer in Crystal Skull too. Lucas' taste is all in his mouth.

By "first three" you mean the last three made, yes? The old 4,5,6,1,2,3 confusion.

Yes, not only am I enough of a nerd to get that right, contextually it was obvious given the Jar Jar reference and who on Earth says that 4-6 were bad? I mean, everyone bags on the Ewoks, but that was just part of 6. Most agree 5 is best, and wishes that they were all that dark and edgy - there's a case to be made for 4 being a nicely contained start-to-finish tale that stands alone.

Saying "the first three" still sounds wrong though, you know?

Thats because I just made it up, Squid! Ha, not really, but first time I heard it was this year too.

I liked all the star war movies. Jar jar was awful and so was boy and young man anakin, but over all I had fun at all the movies and watch them when they are on tv. and I love Natile Portman.

I never saw crystal skull, that holes kid annoys me.
